From the Horse's Mouth

“Winter Getaway”

The staff at C Lazy U was incredibly accommodating, friendly, and helpful. I never thought I would do so many winter activities in one day (planned activities to choose from & ones to do at your own leisure) and yet still feel so much at peace. I highly recommend getting to breakfast early enough so that you can go out & feed the horses with the wranglers
